I recently contributed a photo to a wonderful project called, Hand to Hand. A whole bunch of really talented people donated images to be turned into postcards and sold by donation at shops around town. 100% of the proceeds go towards People of Many, a non-profit, literacy outreach program.
Heather sent all the contributors this great little book as a thank you for participating. I was happily surprised to find my work sitting along side another friend of mine – James Nizam.
Hit “more” for the full list of contributing artists and locations to pickup the postcards.
Seattle-based Matt Daniels (thinklab) directed a gorgeous new music video for Damien Jurado’s song, Caskets. I haven’t been too impressed with the bulk of music videos I’ve seen lately but Matt Daniels’ cinematography alone is worth the 1.5 seconds it will take to move your mouse-hand slightly downwards to click the play button.
My pal Brian over at Shotsringout has a great little interview with Daniels as well.
Improv Everywhere strikes again! This time around they are welcoming total strangers at JFK airport! Flowers, balloons, and personalised posters (names taken from car driver signs)! Great stuff!
I know there will be comments regarding the fact that they plug Absolut at the end but hey we all gotta eat and I can appreciate how minimal they kept the advertising.
I am pleased to announce the launch of our fifth project, Free Encouragement. Erin (Design For Mankind) and I have joined forces, and we are really excited about this one!
So here’s the deal: There is just so much negativity all around us these days, have you noticed? It’s infesting the internet, it’s taking over the big screen, it’s cutting you off, it’s showing up on your bank statement, it’s staining your new shirt, it’s breathing down your neck, it’s not giving you a vacation, it’s talking behind your back, it’s stuffing you in a locker, it’s cheating on you, it’s charging you more, it’s giving you less, and it’s making you miserable!
